BOREAS Follow-On Release

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on 2001-10-02

The ORNL DAAC announces the release of 26 data sets from the BOREAS (Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study) Follow-On project.

The data sets include flux and meteorological data from selected BOREAS field sites as well as derived surface products from modeling activities and remote-sensing data.

The original BOREAS project was a large-scale experiment to investigate interactions between the boreal forest biome and the atmosphere. Surface, airborne, and satellite-based observations were collected from 1993 through 1996 at sites in northwestern Canada to better understand ecosystem processes that may be sensitive to global change.
